Liverpool forward Mo Salah put in an excellent performance against Manchester City on Sunday. The Egyptian international got on the scoresheet after heading in from a supremely well-worked team move.
However, his all-round game was also top drawer, with this turn to evade both Raheem Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan showing off his composure on the ball:

Supporters on Twitter are loving Salah’s piece of skill, and praised the 27-year-old’s return to form at the weekend:

Having now watched it 20 times my eye moves over to the reaction of the City players. Priceless

Gundogan’s “dammit” reaction is great ❤️

It is a shame that Salah is now a doubt for the Reds’ next game against Crystal Palace. The Egyptian has had to withdraw from international duty after picking up another ankle problem versus City.
Although he did play on after the incident, Salah sustained the injury in a tackle from Fernandinho in the first half, and while it certainly didn’t stop him from performing on the day, it remains to be seen how long he will be out for.
